All about Single malt whisky

Single malt whisky is made exclusively from malted grain and comes from a single distillery. Single malts are most commonly associated with Scotland but they can also come from other countries. The United Scotch Whisky Regulations require that single malt Scotch whisky be manufactured entirely from malted barley. It must also be distilled in pot stills and aged for at least three years in wood casks with a capacity of 700 liters.

These regulations do not apply to single malts from other countries. For instance, some single malt whiskey from the United States is made from malted rye rather than malted barley. However, high-quality single malts from other countries like Japan, some Indian Single malts, and others have been made to emulate the Scotland single malt style. Such brands have done a good job to produce equally good whisky that offers value for money.

Even though single malt is manufactured using simple ingredients such as malted barley, yeast, and water, each distillery's flavor and taste are distinct. This is due to differences in manufacturing styles such as fermentation time, operating style, condenser type, distillation, and amount of spirits conserved. Various bottles of the same single malt from varied manufacturers have different flavors and tastes as a result of these variances. The variance in flavor and style of the drink between regions has more to do with how the grains used to make malt are produced in each location.

On a side note, Thirsty Oak liquor store offers the best single malts in Kenya after careful analysis of quality and sourcing from dependable suppliers. We source the best single malt brands from different regions.

Single malt whiskeys come in a variety of flavors, each with its own set of tricks under its sleeve. Famous single malt whiskey brands like Glenfiddich, Highland Park, Dalmore, Ardbeg, and Macallan are great examples of high-quality whiskeys, perfectly representing the single malt category of whiskeys. For instance, the Glenfiddich brand, also one of the oldest single malt distillery, has expressions showcasing distinct pear and crisp green apple notes.

Highland Park, on the other hand, is known for its distinct characteristics, such as its rural Orkey location and obsession with all things Vikings. Every brand has something special to show.

Tasting notes

Single malt whisky is made from a single grain type processed at a single distillery, making it a one-of-a-kind product. This unusual quality distinguishes this whisky from others. By law, single malts must be aged in oak casks, which imparts a pleasant oak flavor.

The woody and oaky taste are agreeable to the palate, with smoky and peat undertones in some brands. The amount of time the barley is exposed to peat smoke during the drying process determines the smokiness level. However, not all brands use peat in their whisky-making process.

The fragrances of fruity, sweet, and winey single malt whisky will hit your senses the instant you open the bottle. Some esters will release milky, metallic, and yeast aromas.
